Who knew I would survive the "blog eat blog world" this long? It's a pretty exciting accomplishment but I must be accurate in my celebration brag. The Lipstick Memoir blog site has been up for a YEAR but the seriousness of blogging didn't kick in till like a few months ago (like March sometime...I think?). When I first heard about blogging, it actually turned me off. It looked like it required a lot of site maintanence (AND IT DOES! ), a lot of time (True life: I suffer from keeping up with life ) and a lot of creativity (no one is going to read a boring blog...what a snoozer).
Anyhoo, I know I am no where near perfecting any of these components (it's a process I learned) but what I have found to be one of the most important elements of building a solid blog is PASSION. Anyone could sign up with a blog platform and write about anything but it takes passion to keep it alive and exciting. I am so grateful for each every follower, comment, advice, criticism, blog shout out, and sponsorship opportunity for The Lipstick Memoir. This blog is truly my "baby monster" I created and I am so excited to see what other opportunities will come my way in the next year! So....in honor of my blog birthday month, I will be posting little snippets of how this whole blog party got started and who knows...more surprise might pop up. I'm feeling really lucky in November so far! xoxo!
